In a story that many of us have heard before, engineering and aviation experts are saying that electronic devices can interfere with an airplane's navigational controls and may have even been a factor in one recent charter plane crash. Scared yet? Learn more after the break.
While the experts also say that the signals emitted by electronic devices don't cause a problem every time (and not even close to the majority of the time), they still have the potential to cause trouble in the cockpit. I don't know about you, but if there's a way that we can prevent this sort of trouble in the cockpit, I'm all in.
So, once more for emphasis: please turn off your electronics when the crew asks you to turn off your electronics.
